    My First Real Watch: BR03-92 w/ Steel Band

    Thought I'd share my first serious watch with you guys.
    I picked up a BR03-92 last year and love it. However I'm a fan of steel bands, so I was quite happy when B&R introduced the steel for the BR03. I've not seen anyone even online with it.
    Anyway enough of my babbling, here you go!

    Phikes,

    Nice first post!!!

    ..and a great first choice. I love the BR03-92, and the simplicity of the all steel case, w/ black face, and steel bracelet is a winner! Great combo

    Good luck with her.

    Nice! First time I've seen the B&R SS bracelet.

    Ya, B&R quietly introduced it. Only places I've seen it is the B&R website and a review on ablogtoread.com.
    To my knowledge B&R introduced the band for the BR03 as a market test of sorts. No idea if its been successful enough for the BR01 guys to get a chance.

    That steel band is sweet. I've never seen one before I saw this thread. Though I'm also a fan of steel band just as much as I like leather or rubber, I think the B&R watch line looks best on a nato or rubber band.

    I like it! I think it gives the BR03 a completely different look than anything I've seen.

    Yes, this band will fit any BR03.
    I'd suspect it would only look good on the stainless steel case. The band is also brushed in the exact same finish as the steel case, so it goes very well.
